With the amount of IPAs brewed here in the States you’d think that there’s only one way to skin a cat. While the West Coast style has long dominated the style, there’s a world of IPAs you should explore, and Blitzkrieg Hops DIPA wouldn’t be a bad start. Blitzkrieg is a big, 9% ABV, juicy, earthy hopped English-style double IPA brewed entirely with English malts, hops, and fermented with an English ale yeast strain. Brewed with Maris Otter pale malt, and hopped with Admiral, Pilgrim, Phoenix, and Target hops; all big, juicy, high alpha English hops that we thought needed a lil’ love, each of which is over 10% alpha acid. Blitzkrieg Hops DIPA is our homage to the birthplace of the IPA as well as the band that inspired its name.

ACBF pour

A-Pours a dark orange color with a thin head of fluffiness.

S-Aroma is vegetal hops with some citrus as well. Malt is pretty heavy here. Balanced with a somewhat odd hop aroma.

T-Malt and hops hear the mic here. I'm still not very enamored with the hop bill. It has an strange vegetal flavor that I don't love. The hops give me some candied citrus as well. Malt is of bread and caramel.

M-Medium bodied. Bitter. Alcohol well hidden. Softer carbonation.

O-Didn't love this one all too much. (504 characters)

16oz can poured into a Hopslam tulip

L: Pours a deeper orange, hazy, brighter golden edges. Big off-white head sticks around, and to the glass.

S: Decent, albeit standard, nose of pine needles, bitter citrus, and bready malts. At least it doesn't smell like a malt bomb, which is basically all I care about.

T: Now we're talking, this is tasty as hell. Lots of juicy tropical citrus fruits up front, I get a ton of ruby red grapefruit, then the malts step in to balance things out, remind you this is 9% ABV, and then boom - bitter beer face. No doubt this is a big, high IBU beer.

F: Maybe my favorite part of the beer, somewhere in between creamy, and lively. Perfect amount of carbonation, aka a flavor delivery machine.

O: Not sure what some others have been drinking, but I didn't find this boozy in the least. Can you tell it's 9%? Kind of, not all that much. It's actually a fairly easy to drink DIPA, and I will definitely seek this one out everytime it's released fresh. Really solid brew. (1,003 characters)

When I get asked what the most underrated beer on BA is, this is the easy answer. I cannot even fathom how the ratings for this beer are so low. It is a dank, citrusy treat, an even better one than Shape of Hops to Come, NC's summer DIPA. Honestly, this beer is fantastic, citrus with a beautiful malt finish that brings the beer into balance. Could not recommend it more.. (380 characters)

The use of high alpha acid British hops is well appreciated- the pilgrim hops really come through front and center with a grapefruit hop punch each sip. (153 characters)

Per style it was mediocre.. Did not care for the choice of hops or overall taste. From a pounder 4 pack. (104 characters)
